Balgowlah, NSW 2093

Balgowlah is a wonderfully laidback suburb highly desired for its geographical beauty and relaxed lifestyle.

It was named in 1832 after an Aboriginal word meaning 'north harbour', referencing Balgowlah's position from Port Jackson.

The picturesque Manly Scenic Walkway winds along Balgowlah's foreshore, past North Harbour Reserve, with its playground and basketball court, around to the charming old North Harbour Sailing Club and on to pretty Forty Baskets Beach. Set in the protected waters of Manly Cove, it's loved for its swimming enclosure and magical harbour views.

Real estate-wise, Balgowlah offers a diversity of properties, from family homes from a variety of eras on generous blocks to apartments, both older style and more contemporary. Many homes on the harbour side of the suburb enjoy glorious water vistas.

Golf lovers can play a round at Balgowlah Golf Club or Manly Golf Club, one of Sydney's original foundation clubs with more than a century of rich golfing heritage, complete with a Group One Thomson Perrett designed course rated among Australia's top 100. Next to this, LM Graham Reserve offers soccer and cricket facilities as well as a dog park.

Balgowlah is home to Stockland Balgowlah Shopping Centre where you'll find fashion, food, supermarkets and specialty stores. You're also just a short drive from Manly, which offers countless attractions including world-class surf breaks, unique shops and a bustling culinary and entertainment scene with countless cafes, restaurants, small bars and micro-breweries.

Nearby schools and childcare centres are abundant which reflects the family orientation of the area. They include Manly West Public School, Balgowlah Heights Public School, St Mary's Catholic Primary School, St Cecilia's Catholic Primary School, Northern Beaches Secondary College Balgowlah Boys Campus, Northern Beaches Secondary College Manly Campus, Northern Beaches Secondary College Freshwater Senior Campus and Northern Beaches Secondary College Mackellar Girls Campus.

You can take a quick bus ride down to the Manly ferry, which takes you on a scenic journey to the city, with buses along Sydney Road also taking you to the CBD. Balgowlah is on one of the routes of Manly Council's free Hop-Skip-Jump bus services within the Manly area.
